Humanitarian Shayna Turk: Winner of Young Entrepreneur Award and Scholarship
Talk Show host Dr. Arlene Barro created her WIN Without Competing! show for candidates, employees, entrepreneurs and employers to learn about her Right Fit Method from her guest interviews.
On WIN Without Competing! Dr. Arlene will interview 18 year-old Shayna Turk, chosen from 4,300 candidates across the country in 2010, as Young Entrepreneur of the Year by The National Federation of Independent Business Young Entrepreneur Foundation. Along with this honor which she received in Washington, D.C., Turk was awarded a $10,000 educational scholarship from VISA to attend USC.
At age 11, Turk became an entrepreneur. She founded the drama camp, Shayna Turk’s Academy of Rising Stars (STARS), to give kids a chance to star in musicals, which she directs, choreographs and markets. Turk has a natural affinity for the theatre. At age five, she began her acting career and performed in twenty-seven musicals.
Turk has more than 30 campers in STARS who not only learn wonderful theatre skills but also self-confidence. Turk consciously works on teaching both.
Turk is much more than a successful young entrepreneur. She is a humanitarian. From her theatrical productions she raised $15,000, which she donated to the Music for Heart Foundation. This money saved the lives of six children who had surgery for congenital heart defects.
Join Dr. Arlene as she uncovers why Turk made two medical missions to El Salvador to pursue her humanitarian efforts.
